FALL HOME MAINTENANCE TIPS
It's time to give your home a maintenance checkup and prepare for the cooler months ahead. Follow these 4 tips to give your home the care it needs this fall!

1. Inspect and Repair Your Roof
Your roof endures a lot throughout the year, and regular maintenance is essential to prevent major damage and costly repairs. Experts recommend having your roof inspected twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. Look for loose, missing, curling, or blistering shingles, and replace any missing or broken shingles right away. Also, check for soft spots, which indicates rotting wood beneath the shingles. Reseal flashing around chimneys, vents, and skylights with new caulk, or replace them if they are beginning to rust. If you have a tile roof, talk to a professional before climbing up on your roof as tiles are fragile and can break easily. 

2. Seal Out Air Leaks
Cracks and gaps around your home's exterior allow air to seep in and out, resulting in wasted energy costs and consumption. This also allows moisture to enter your home, which can cause mold, mildew, and wood rot. Prevent potential air leaks by applying weather-stripping around windows and door frames, and caulk any openings where plumbing, wiring, air ducts, and AC units enter the house. 

3. Have Your Furnace Serviced
Furnace maintenance is an item that's commonly overlooked by homeowners, but it shouldn't be. Having your furnace checked by a professional (once a year, HVAC pros recommend) ensures it's working properly and efficiently and also helps to control heating costs. Plus, a furnace checkup can identify deadly carbon monoxide leaks or potential fire hazards. In addition to getting your furnace serviced, don't forget to replace air filters, which should be done at least every three months. 

4. Ready Your Lawn
If you want a healthy, attractive lawn in the spring, aerating and fertilizing in the fall are a must. Aerating involves creating small holes in your soil to allow air, water, and nutrients to reach the grass roots. You can rent an aerator or hire a lawn care service to take care of it; just be sure to use a plug aerator over a spike aerator, which actually removes plugs of grass instead of simply poking holes. Most importantly, be sure to fertilize your yard to allow your grass to absorb vital nutrients and promote root growth. Doing so will result in a healthier, greener lawn in the spring.

HALLOWEEN HEALTH & SAFETY TIPS
Check out these tips to help make the festivities fun and safe for
trick-or-treaters and party guests!

  • Swords, knives, and other costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.
  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
  • Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
  • Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat.
  • Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. WALK and don’t run from house to house.
  • Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.
  • Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Never accept rides from strangers.

We wish your family a safe & fun Halloween!
